The surname Echil was first found in Essex where the family name was first referenced in the year 1278 when William and Richard Eggell held estates in that county. Other early records revealed that some of the family resided at Standerwick in Somerset. "Standerwick Court, the seat of Admiral Harry Edgell, is a handsome mansion, in the grounds of which are the remains of an ancient encampment, supposed to have been the connecting station between Bath and Alfred's tower at Stourton." [1]

The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Echil has been recorded under many different variations, including Edgell, Eggell, Edgle, Edgele, Edgelle, Edgill, Edghill and many more.

For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Echil or a variant listed above: William Edgell, who arrived in New England in 1720-1725; and Robert Etchells, who landed in Allegany (Allegheny) County, Pa in 1868
